Keith Parnell Tribute Sprint
Keith Parnell was the first man in the UK to run an eight second quarter on his Rouge et Noir Triumph back in 1975, so the National Sprint Association thought it would be a nice gesture to run a commemorative sprint at Weston Zoyland this weekend - the 20th & 21st June.
We ran a profile on Keith in SF182, detailing how he has become part of Britain's drag racing heritage, and the meeting this weekend is set to be something special, with many names coming out of the woodwork to attend, including Walter Sprout, the American Pro Street racer who ran on Steve 'Copperhead' Mead's Hayabusa at the Summer Nationals last weekend. The non-prepped Zoyland track should test his mettle!
